  • Be Heat-Sensitive
    Be careful wielding that dryer or flat iron. If you use one (or more) hot tools, thermal protectants are a must to maintain the integrity of the hair, no matter your age. We like Got2b Guardian Angel flat iron balm, which adds shine, seals the hair shaft, and helps protect color.

  • Focus on Volume
    As our hair thins with age, products that encompass and plump up the hair shaft, giving it a thicker feel, are ideal. We like Big Sexy Hair Big Altitude Bodifying low Dry Mousse, which contains a protein copolymer blend that attaches to each strand.

  • Coloring hair can also change the texture—and thus give it more volume. Technically the volume you get is due to damage (or roughing up of the cuticle) that color treatment causes, but some fine hair sufferers consider this a sacrifice worth making for a bigger ’do.

  • Deal With Grays
    Hydrogen peroxide, which is produced naturally in the human body, interferes with melanin, the pigment that colors our hair and skin. A buildup of hydrogen peroxide in the follicles is the major cause of gray. When we’re younger, the body naturally produces the enzyme catalase, which

  • breaks down hydrogen peroxide into water and oxygen so the body releases it. As we age, catalase production tails off, and hydrogen peroxide accumulates. If you're not keen on graying (which can obviously look super chic!) you can try catalase supplements, which are available in vitamin stores.

  • Do Pre-Damage Control
    The most common damage from environmental stress is the sun. “Ultraviolet rays can deplete hair of its natural moisture content as well as color,” says Rafe. Try a product with SPF, like Alterna Thickening Gel-Lotion. He also recommends pH-balanced, sulfate-free shampoos and

  • conditioners to prevent existing hair from drying out and losing its natural elasticity. There is one thing we can’t fight.“Unfortunately, there is no way to elude genetics yet, and by that I mean typical male or female pattern baldness and texture. You can change your style, but not your genes."
